I understand, my dear new friend, and to avoid such happenstance in my own bailiwick, I am grabbing my pack, blanket roll, and trusty longrifle and am heading back to the woods poste haste! Civilization and I have had enough of each other for awhile. I have placed a new bottle of port for Major Rogers and a bottle dark rum for myself in my pack, and am going to meet Timothy and Pvt. Chauncey somewhere along Lake George.
I will send dispatches from time to time to keep all in Mohicanland informed as to how this war progresses. My only hope is that we are not placed in another Ticonderoga. Since Namby-pambercrombie has been replaced by General Amherst, the situation in the army should be resolved. I am rested and ready for adventure!! Cousins Malcolm and Davey, and my friends of the 77th Highlanders, are on their way to Ligonier, and we must finish our term of service with Major Rogers and get back to Pennsylvania in time to join them and General Forbes. I understand Capt. Croy is not too pleased that Flags and Tales have taken off to visit their women...but that I understand, too. My heart longs for Nancy, the dark haired lass, and I am sure Timothy worries greatly about Gloria. She will soon bear their child, and we hope to be there for that.
Now that I have donned my breech clout, brain-tanned leggings, heavy linen hunting shirt, moccasins, my old familiar floppy wide-brimmed hat with the musket ball hole in it...and smell like a thousand campfires.....I cannot describe the feel....it is just "right!" So...it's off to the woods for me!
...and we WILL share that port someday!
